In 1675, Sir Isaac Newton said, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the
shoulders of Giants.” Some of these “Giants,” my artistic influences, include Anish
Kapoor, Magdalena Abakanowicz, David Hockney, Anslem Kiefer, and William
Tucker.

I am inspired by Anish Kapoor’s geometic and biomorphic sculptures made of
simple materials. His explorations of both presence and absence and matter and
non-matter are influential to contemporary sculpture. He specifically evokes the void
in his freestanding sculptural works and ambitious installations.
I admire Magadalena Abakanowicz’s work because her subject matters, dealing
with history, myth, national identity and symbolic potency.

David Hockney is simply an amazing painter and draughtsman.

I have always had a high regard for Anslem Kiefer, the German painter and sculptor,
for his confrontational canvases and sculptures dealing with recent political and
historical context.

William Tucker, who wrote the iconic book, the Language of Sculpture, and his
amazing bronzes that follow in the contemporary footsteps from Rodin.
